Of course, the reason for making artist trading cards it to swap them! And that’s just what I did with a talented group of SAQA (Studio Art Quilt Associates) members from south Florida.
These are the nine cards I received.
What a collection! These women are pretty fearless. They used a lot of surface design techniques, including painting, thread painting, melting, gluing, and hand stitching.
Here are some closer views.
A wide variety of materials was skillfully employed by these artists. Can you identify the orange open-weave item in the left card above? Yep, it’s from a produce bag. Great texture and contrast!
Both of the cards below used glued paper, among other things.
It was great fun trading ATCs and generally celebrating the holidays with these women!
P.S. SAQA is an excellent organization. Find more info here. (I’m biased, but I think the Florida members are especially talented, active, willing to help, and fun to hang out with!)
